'The Rabbit said to itself, "Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be late!"; but when the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit either with a waistcoat-pocket or a watch to take out of it'. This purse is based on the beautiful illustrations by Sir John Tenniel. Sir John Tenniel was the artist who agreed to illustrate the revised and expanded text which was now called Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland which was published in July was subsequently withdrawn. The illustrator was displeased at the poor quality of printing, which did not do justice to his illustrations. All but about 15 copies were successfully recalled and presumed destroyed. A new edition was published in November 1865 (but dated 1866).
